Cerebral concussion in athletes has complete recovery in most cases
Cerebral concussion is a type of cranial brain injury common in athletes and is characterized by a transient loss of consciousness, ie the athlete is literally unconscious for a few seconds. In most cases the recovery is complete, leaving only a certain "forgetfulness" for recent events leading up to the trauma.
In general the concussion mechanism is related to the inelastic cranial casing, and the acceleration and deceleration forces which move the brain over the brainstem to a direction, when it then hits the bone and back in the opposite direction. Of course this occurs in a space of millimeters, enough to cause loss of consciousness.
Since most concussions resolve on their own, treatment is usually conservative, requiring a brief medical evaluation and a period of observation
Perhaps the sport where cerebral concussion is an almost obsessive study by all involved is Ice Hockey. However, for obvious reasons, this is a sport that will not avenge or avenge in our country. The soccer world cup, however, shows a number of situations where one player bumps his head with the other, and sometimes someone ends up suffering from a concussion.
Since most concussions resolve themselves, treatment is usually a short medical evaluation and a period of observation. This medical evaluation, in turn, must include a brief neurological examination. In cases where recovery of consciousness does not occur or there are other warning signs, the athlete should be referred by ambulance to the hospital for further examination.
Drawing on the experience and the huge series of research on concussion in hockey, he believes it is believed that one of the long-term problems of recurrent brain concussions is the triggering of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. This is, however, still lacking in further studies.
Whether in hockey or in football, traumatic brain injury is something that should be seen very carefully, which is why we should always require the presence of doctors and ambulance (s) in sporting events in our country.
